    Sounds like a great trip. We will be on The Black Pearl Monday-Yea! This will be our 5th time. Well worth the money for a relaxing, romantic sail. Good to know that they are nice about being naked at the Divi Divi. I wish I could speak dutch. Last year at ABC, while naked, they kept pushing me in the water yelling - "walvis"! I guess its a prude beach not a nude beach. Oh well we will be there soon!

    Tuesday. Today it was palapa no. 34 all day. That is all day for me, Tom headed to the casino after lunch. He did manage to recover the large donation he made the day before and surprisingly called it a day. Lunch was at Bugaloe which we enjoyed. Dinner at Barneys for that Parmesan crusted grouper everyone talks about. While there we met Bosox and his wife who are members of the forum. Nice couple and it was fun to chat. The Radisson is having their festival tonight. We took a walk through then came back to the room to listen to the music from our balcony.

    Just one one full day left until we go home. This vacation flew. I'm glad we decided to spend a few nights here at the Radisson. My heart though is still with the Divi. It would be difficult to compare the 2 resorts as they just are totally different experiences.

    Knowing it was our last full day we did our best not to think about it. This vacation could not have been any better. We decided on Salt and Pepper for breakfast. While we have been there many times we have never been for breakfast. We weren't disappointed. I was into getting as much beach time as possible and Tom was itching to get back to the casino. He held off until after lunch which was at Mira Sol for light bites. I stayed at the beach. The water is amazing and while the beach is busy they do manage to space the palapas comfortably. The biggest decision of the day was where to go to dinner. We decided on Casa Tua. The only problem was I knew I wanted Apple strudel for dessert and they wouldn't have it. Oh the dilemmas of vacation! So after dinner we strolled over to Fishes and More to ask if they could accommodate us for dessert and coffee. Very accommodating. We both got strudel with ice cream. I like the tiny little shops there as well. Since I only brought a light jacket on the way down I picked up a sweatshirt so I wouldn't freeze when we arrived at Boston Logan. Tomorrow I may try to talk Tom into going to Linda's for pancakes since we don't need to leave for the airport until 11:15. Do you see a trend here? It's all about food!!!
